  • A Case Study of Isosurface Extraction Algorithm Performance 

    Sutton, Philip M.; Hansen, Charles D.; Shen, Han-Wei; Schikore, Dan (The Eurographics Association, 2000)
    Isosurface extraction is an important and useful visualization method. Over the past ten years, the field has seen numerous isosurface techniques published, leaving the user in a quandary about which one should be used. ...
  • Case Study: Resource Steering in a Visualization System 

    Chi, Ed H.; Riedl, John T. (The Eurographics Association, 2000)
    Visual computational steering environments extend traditional visualization environments by enabling the user to interactively steer the computations applied to the data. In this paper, we develop a new type of computational ...

    König, Andreas H.; Doleisch, Helmut; Kottar, Andreas; Kriszt, Brigitte; Gröller, Eduard (The Eurographics Association, 2000)
    In recent years there has been an increased interest in metal foams in the field of material science. The stress absorbing potential is one of the most interesting properties for the application of aluminium foam (e.g. car ...
  • Fast Visualization of Special Relativistic Effects on Geometry and Illumination 

    Weiskopf, Daniel (The Eurographics Association, 2000)
    This paper describes a novel rendering technique for the special relativistic visualization of the geometry and illumination of fast moving objects. The physical basis consists of the relativistic aberration of light, the ...
  • WWW-based Visualization of the Real Time Run of a Space Weather Forecasting Model 

    Maurtis, Sergei; McAllister, Jeff; Watkins, Brenton (The Eurographics Association, 2000)
    As use of earth-orbiting space technology increases, so does the need to understand and forecast the space weather. The University of Alaska Fairbanks Eulerian Parallel Polar Ionosphere Model (UAF EPPIM) is a first principles ...
  • ViSSh: A Data Visualisation Spreadsheet 

    Nunez, Fabian; Blake, Edwin (The Eurographics Association, 2000)
    We describe a data visualisation system which uses spreadsheets as its user interface metaphor. Similar systems implemented in the past were hampered by the contradiction between an imperative formula language and the ...
  • Design of Visualizations for Urban Modeling 

    Pinnel, L. Denise; Dockrey, Matthew; Brush, A.J. Bernheim; Borning, Alan (The Eurographics Association, 2000)
    Urban planning experts often use computer models to help evaluate alternative land use policies, particularly as they interact with transportation and environmental decisions. The greatly increased data volume provided by ...
  • A Framework for Interactive Hardware Accelerated Remote 3D-Visualization 

    Engel, Klaus; Sommer, Ove; Ertl, Thomas (The Eurographics Association, 2000)
    In this paper we present a framework that provides remote control to Open Inventor or Cosmo3D based visualization applications. A visualization server distributes a visualization session to Java based clients by transmitting ...
  • Appearance-Based Virtual-View Generation for Fly Through in a Real Dynamic Scene 

    Baba, Shigeyuki; Saito, Hideo; Vedula, Sundar; Cheung, Kong Man; Kanade, Takeo (The Eurographics Association, 2000)
    We present appearance-based virtual view generation which allows viewers to fly through a real dynamic scene. The scene is captured by synchronized multiple cameras. Arbitrary views are generated by interpolating two ...
  • SMARTLINK: An Agent for Supporting Dataflow Application Construction 

    Telea, Alexandru; Wijk, Jarke J. van (The Eurographics Association, 2000)
    Visual programmable dataflow systems are an effective way to build a large class of visualization applications from existing software modules. However, the appeal of dataflow systems is often decreased as their users have ...
  • Integrated Multiresolution Geometry and Texture Models for Terrain Visualization 

    Baumann, Konstantin; Döllner, Jürgen; Hinrichs, Klaus (The Eurographics Association, 2000)
    In this paper, an approach for integrating multiresolution representations of terrain geometry and terrain texture data is presented. A terrain is modeled by a regular grid, which can be partially refined by local TINs in ...
  • Variational Approach to Vector Field Decomposition 

    Polthier, Konrad; Preuß, Eike (The Eurographics Association, 2000)
    For the feature analysis of vector fields we decompose a given vector field into three components: a divergence-free, a rotation-free, and a harmonic vector field. This Hodge-type decomposition splits a vector field using ...
  • Hybrid Model for Vascular Tree Structures 

    Puig, Anna; Tost, Dani; Navazo, Isabel (The Eurographics Association, 2000)
    This paper proposes a new representation scheme of the cerebral blood vessels. This model provides information on the semantics of the vascular structure: the topological relationships between vessels and the labeling of ...
  • Direct Volume Rendering from Photographic Data 

    Ebert, David; McClanahan, Tim; Rheingans, Penny; Yoo, Terry (The Eurographics Association, 2000)
    Direct volume rendering from photographic volume data has the potential to create realistic images of internal volume structure, as well as the structure of boundaries within the volume. While possession of the photographic ...
  • Hardware Accelerated Wavelet Transformations 

    Hopf, Matthias; Ertl, Thomas (The Eurographics Association, 2000)
    Wavelets and related multiscale representations are important means for edge detection and processing as well as for segmentation and registration. Due to the computational complexity of these approaches no interactive ...
  • Progressive Volume Models for Rectilinear Data using Tetrahedral Coons Volumes 

    Holliday, David J.; Nielson, Gregory M. (The Eurographics Association, 2000)
    We present a new technique for modeling rectilinear volume data. The algorithm produces a trivariate model, F(x; y; z), which is piecewise defined over tetrahedra that fits the volume data to within a user specified ...
  • Multiresolution Techniques for Interactive Texture-based Rendering of Arbitrarily Oriented Cutting Planes 

    LaMar, Eric; Duchaineau, Mark A.; Hamann, Bernd; Joy, Kenneth I. (The Eurographics Association, 2000)

  • Very Large Scale Visualization Methods for Astrophysical Data 

    Hanson, Andrew J.; Fu, Chi-Wing; Wernert, Eric A. (The Eurographics Association, 2000)

  • Skeleton Graph Generation for Feature Shape Description 

    Reinders, Freek; Jacobson, Melvin E.D.; Post, Frits H. (The Eurographics Association, 2000)
    An essential step in feature extraction is the calculation of attribute sets describing the characteristics of a feature. Often, attribute sets include the position, size, and orientation of the feature. These attributes ...
